This being the first day of the new year, I could write about any number of things......some positive....some negative; like how New Year's Eve, drunken Filipinos and karaoke don't make for an enjoyable night. But, no, I won't go there.
To keep this on a more positive bent, I'll go ahead and post the list of books I've read or re-read in 2014.
This list contains 31 books; eleven more than the list for 2012.
There are a few books which I started, but haven't finished - The Innocents Abroad, by Mark Twain, The Devil's Pool , by George Sand, and Joseph Conrad's, Heart of Darkness . I can't say for certain if I'll finish those three.
The first book for 2015 will probably be Mystery of the Yellow Room, by the author of The Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux.
So, without further ado, the list:
The Mysterious Affair at Styles Agatha Christie
